It's your walkie-talkie Teams mate, over. 'You don't have to say Over, over'. Copy that. Stop making the static noise, over and out

Re: "Over and out"

AFAIK 'Over and Out' was invented by Hollywood scripwriters who wanted their characters to sound 'official'.

Correct procedure is 'Over' when a reply is expected or 'Out' when a reply is unwanted because the conversation is finished.
